We clothe us with the sable cap and gown, 
The ancient symbols of the scholar's art; — 
We grasp the parchment roll, assume the part 

Of those who wear fair wisdom's gleaming crown; 

Yet trusting to be known by what is real, 
We wrap a subtler garment o'er the whole, 
And gladly wear it for each varied role — 

This dimly shining cloak of life's ideal.

Tune — "Believe ine if all those endearing young charms." 
ttS £ ^ 

St. Mary's! wherever thy daughters may be, 

They love thy high praises to sing, 
And tell of thy beauties of campus and tree 

Around which sweet memories cling. 
They may wander afar, out of reach of thy name; 

Afar, out of sight, of thy grove, 
But the thought of St. Mary's aye kindles a flame 

Of sweet recollections and love. 

Beloved St. Mary's! how great is our debt! 

Thou hast cared for thy daughters full well; 
They can never thy happy instructions forget, 

Nor fail of thy virtues to tell. 
The love that they feel is a heritage pure; 

An experience wholesome and sweet. 
Through fast rolling years it will grow and endure; 

Be a lamp and a guide to their feet. 

May the future unite all the good of thy past 

With the best that new knowledge can bring. 
Ever onward and upward thy course! To the last 

Be thou steadfast in every good thing. 
Generations to come may thy fair daughters still 

Fondly think on thy halls and thy grove 
And carry thy teachings — o'er woodland and hill — 

Of earnestness, wisdom, and love. 

— H. E. H., 1905.

''I need say nothing of his personal worth ; I have uttered the opinion in 
private which I take this occasion to express publicly, as my deliberate judgment, 
that Dr. Smedes accomplished more for the advancement of this diocese, and for the 
promotion of the best interest of society in its limits, than any man who ever lived 
in it."

years went by, lie preserved the distinct and characteristic flavor of moral and 
spiritual culture which has made St. Mary's School under him and his father dear 
to the hearts of southern Churchmen. He commanded the respect and affection of 
all his pupils, and the name of Smedes will not soon 1h i forgotten in the hundred-

Rector of St. Mary's 1899-1903. 

Bishop Bratton, the son of (Ten. John Bratton of the C. S. A., was born at 
Winnsboro, S. C. He was educated at Sewanee — graduating successively from the 
Grammar School, the College of Arts, and the Theological School. While in the 
University he taught in the Grammar School. He was ordained deacon by Bishop 
Capers in 18S7, and priest in 1SSS. He went as missionary to York, Lancaster and 
Chester, S. C, in 1877, and was called from that held to Spartanburg, S. C, in 
T88S. He remained there from 188S until called to St. Mary's in 1899. During 
his ministry in Spartanburg he taught at Converse College.

Rector of St. Mary's, 1904-1907. 

Rev. McNeely DuBose was born at Clarendon, S. C. He is two years, the 
senior of his cousin, Bishop Brat ton. They were together at Sewanee, passing 
successively through the Grammar Sehool, College and Seminary together. Mr. 
DuBose received the B.S. degree in 1881 j and that of B.D. in 1884. His first 
parish was at Onion, S. C, where he remained from 1885 t«> 1890. In L890 he 
became Rector of Trinity Church, Asheville, and served there with much success 
until 1004, when he was called to St. .Mary'-. After four year- of most faithful 
work here, during which period the school equipment was much improved and the 
school finances so satisfactorily managed that the way was paved for the present 
improvements, Mr, DuBose yielded to his lunging for parish work, resigned the 
rectorship of the school and took charge <>f the parish and mission Held at Morgan 
ton, in the District of Asheville, where he is still doing inspiring work in the 
eight missions and seven mission schools of which he has charge.

St. Mary's School was founded in 1842, by the Rev. Aldert Smedes, 
D.D. The opening day was May 12th. 

The present location was first set apart as the site of an Episcopal 
school in 1832, when influential churchmen, carrying out a plan proposed 
by Bishop Ives, purchased the present "Grove" as a part of a tract of 
160 acres, to be used in establishing a Church School for boys. First 
East Rock House, then West Rock House and Main Building were built 
for use in this boys' school. But the school, though it started out with 
great promise, proved unsuccessful and was closed; and the property 
passed back into private hands. 

Bishop Ives was instrumental in 1842 in getting Dr. Aldert Smedes, at 
that time conducting a successful girls' school in New York City, to come 
to Raleigh to establish St. Mary's, which he did in May, 1842, as stated. 

From the first the school was a success, and for the remainder of his 
life Dr. Smedes allowed nothing to interrupt the work he had undertaken. 
During the years of the War between the States St. Mary's was at the 
same time school and refuge for those driven from their homes. It is a 
tradition of which her daughters are proud, that during those years of 
struggle her doors were ever open, and that at one time the family of the 
beloved President of the Confederacy were sheltered within her walls. 

On April 25, 1877, Dr. Smedes died, leaving St. Mary's to the care of 
his son. Rev. Dr. Bennett Smedes, who had been during his father's life- 
time a teacher in the school. This trust was regarded as sacred, and for 
twenty-two years, in which he spared neither expense nor pains, Dr. 
Bennett Smedes carried on his father's work for education. 

During this eventful half-century, St. Mary's was in the truest sense a 
Church school, but it was a private enterprise. 

In 1897, at the suggestion of Dr. Bennett Smedes, the Diocese of 
North Carolina purchased the real property from Mr. Cameron, the pri- 
vate owner, and the school ecfuipment from Dr. Smedes; and the School 
was chartered by the General Assembly. The corporate title is "The 
Trustees of St. Mary's School, Raleigh, N. C." 

Dr. Smedes continued as Rector until his death in 1899. He was suc- 
ceeded by Dr. Bratton, who resigned to become Bishop of Mississippi in 

1903. Rev. McNeely DuBose succeeded Dr. Bratton in September, 1903, 
and was in turn succeeded by the present Rector, Rev. Geo. W. Lay, 
in July, 1907. 

During the life of the founder St. Mary's was a high-class school for 
the general education of girls, the training being regulated by the needs 
and exigencies of the years. Pupils finished their training without "grad- 
uating." In 1879, under the second Rector, set courses were established, 
covering college preparatory work without sacrificing the special features 
which the school stands for, and in June, 1879, the first class was regu- 
larly graduated. 

For the first fifteen years of St. Mary's there were but the three build- 
ings that now form the central group. The chapel was on the first floor 
of East Rock; the Rector and his family lived in the east half of the 
second floor of the Main Building ; dormitories of the style of those still 
surviving were on both floors of West Rock and on the second floor of 
East Rock as well as on the third floor of the Main Building. 

In 1867 the Chapel was built by the owner of the property according to 
Dr. Smedes's wishes. It was designed by Upjohn, a famous architect of 
the time, and the first floor of East Rock became available for other pur- 
poses. During the war as many individuals found a home in the school 
as have ever been accommodated since, but there was much "doubling up." 
In ordinary times, however, the full number of boarding pupils was usually 
less than a hundred. 

In 1884 the Art Building, intended for recitation purposes only, was 
added to the equipment. The building was scarcely finished when it 
caught fire and was entirely burned, but without delay the present build- 
ing was erected on the same foundations. No need for further new 
buildings was felt from this time until after the coming of Dr. Bratton, 
when his magnetic influence and the inauguration of an active campaign 
for students for what was now the Diocesan School led to a complete over- 
flowing of the buildings. As speedily as possible funds were secured and 
Dr. Bratton had the North .Dormitory and Rectory erected, meantime 
using the old Blount mansion across the street as an overflow dormitory. 

The loss of the wooden Infirmary by fire in 1904 led to the building of 
the new brick Infirmary in that year ; the next year the Chapel was rebuilt 
and enlarged through the efforts of the Alumnse; in 1907 the Auditorium 
was erected as the Eliza Battle Pittman Memorial ; and now, through the 
Clement Legacy, the wings to the Main Building, with the improved front, 
are in process of erection. Next session should find 175 boarders in 
residence at the school, the largest number that St. Mary's has ever 

May the Alma Mater live long and increasingly prosper !

St. Mary's ! oh, how sweet to us 

That old beloved name sounds; 
Dear memories come trooping back 

Of chapel, building, grounds. 

. The girls we used to love so well, 
And others that we knew — 
The parlor, schoolroom, staircase, hall, 
That were so dear to you. 

The teachers whom we owe so much, 

So dear to mem'ry still; 
The thoughts of them come back to us, 

Our grateful hearts to fill. 

The lessons that we tried to learn, 

The games we used to play — 
Ah ! would those happy days return 

Continually to stay. 

We hear the old familiar hymns, • 

The organ's solemn peal, 
And all the Chapel services 

To-day seem just as real. 

The girls we used to know are gone 

And others take their place ; 
Yes, if to-day we should return, 

We'd hardly know a face. 

But matter not how long the time, 

How far we have to roam, 
For ave we'll think with deepest love 

Of our St. Mary's home. S. P. T., 1908.

We drink to those who came before, 

To those who follow after, 

We wish to them a brimming cup 

Of joys, of health, of laughter. 

And now we drink to our own selves, 

To the girls of nineteen nine — 

We pledge each other true and firm 

In the cup of foaming wine. 

May the ruby hue of its gladsome red 

Be a living, steadfast sign 

Of a life that is sound and clear and full, 

Of a face turned toward the light; 

Let the foam which crowns it symbolize 

That we scorn not the poor or the slight; 

And the deep, dark dregs remind us all 

Life's more than the crimson and foam, 

That there's depth to our pledges and strength in our ties 

To friends, Alma Mater, and Home. 

We're six little maids at school, and We 
Have arrived at the summit of the Knowledge Tree ; 
We've tugged and hauled and pulled and pushed, 
And from glory on to glory up the slope we've rushed — 
We've arrived ! Hurrah ! We've arrived ! Hurrah !

And we shed a tear of pity on the little bittie preps. —

HERE are Six Pictures. They are the Pictures of Six Girls. The 
Six Girls are the Seniors of Naughty Nine. They were not naughty 

The first is a picture of "Sal." She* is 
very dignified. She is making a speech. 
She often makes speeches. Her speech 
is on Woman's Rights. She often speaks 
on that subject. She still loves to be 
president of everything. She still is 
president of almost everything. The pic- 
ture doesn't show that. 

She has lots of suitors — not "mashes." 
They are not in the picture either. She 
pities them. They are mere men. 

This is a funny picture. Do you see 
Wilson ? Well, then you know. It is 
Georgia. The man is her husband. He 
gets smaller and smaller. You just can 
see him. He has forgotten how to talk. 
She almost talked him to death. Then 
her throat gave out. She bought a talk- 
ing machine. She also bought a little 
dog. They are both in the picture. You 
can't hear the noise though. It is awful. 
The machine is talking; the dog is bark- 
ing. They always do. Poor man ! 

,."Min" is a society lady. She always 
tries to look pretty. She is very happy 
now. She has grown "divinely tall." I 
don't know how. The picture doesn't 
tell.. She sweeps into reception halls and 
ballrooms. Many suitors follow her. 
She can't decide which to take. She often

point. She doesn't either,

This is a real picture of Eva. She is 
still singing. First she sang to crowds 
of people ; then she sang to Edenton Bay. 
The bay is more appreciative. It can't 
hear her. She continues to sing to the 
bay. She sings on moonlight nights. 
Her suitor is being charmed by her 
voice. He hasn't gotten there yet. He 
isn't in the picture. I'm sorry. He will 
get there soon though. 

"Here comes the bride." She is 
Frankie. She has lots of things to make 
her happy. They are not in the picture. 
It is small; it couldn't hold them. She 
is going to live happy ever after. That 
is all.

Miss Clement. 

Miss Eleanor Clement, founder of the Clement Scholarship and donor of the 
Clement Legacy, came to St. Mary's in the '40s as a girl of twelve or thirteen. Her 
mother, Madame Clement, Dr. Aldert Smedes' first French teacher, came to St. Mary's 
St. Mary's with him when he opened the school. 

Miss Clement spent her very early years with aunts in Paris, then came to 
St. Mary's for her English education, and again returned to Paris to fit herself as a, 
teacher of French. She taught French in St. Mary's for several years. 

Madame and Miss Clement left St. Mary's in the '50s, lived for a time in Wil- 
mington, N. C, and in 1868 opened a school for girls in Germantown, Pa. This 
school proved very successful and was continued by Madame Clement until her 
death in 1878, and for some years later by Miss Clement. 

Miss Clement, who died October 1, 1904, provided in her will for a $5,000 
scholarship at St. Mary's in memory of her mother, and also left the School her 
residuary legatee. By the death of her friend, Miss O'Connor, also a former teacher 
at St. Mary's, the School came into the residuary funds, amounting to about $30,000, 
in the fall of 1908. 

(granboaugfjters anb <great°granbbatt8f)ters( of &t. ifflarp's 

All who know St. Mary's at all know that more than in most schools 
its influence spreads through the different members of a family ; its tradi- 
tions go down from mother to daughter, so that it is not rare for all the 
daughters of a family for two generations to have been pupils here. 

This close kinship with the school the Alumnae Association endeavors 
to keep alive, outside, but considering the large number of descendants of 
former pupils rlow in the school, it seemed wise to organize an association 
of these girls inside the school. This was done in the spring of the 
present year. The organization is not as yet in formal shape, but its 
aim is definite, in that it means to knit more closely the old traditions with 
new ideas, and to try to form a nucleus here in the school that shall later 
develop along lines of efficient service in the Alumnae Association.

« is &' 

Long ago in Benarva there lived two little princesses — Dorrydel and 
Elvaine. Their father and mother, the good king and queen, died when 
little Elvaine was scarcely lisping, and their brave brother ruled the 
land instead, so the little maids were left much to themselves ; but they 
loved each other dearly, and played and romped right merrily, just as 
little girls do nowadays. Often they sailed boats on Swan Lake with a 
lady-in-waiting, or they swayed in the branches of Apple-tree Palace, or 
they rode to war on gallant sapling chargers ; and little Elvaine was as 
eager to play as Dorrydel, and Dorrydel picked no flowers that the little 
sister did not seek also, and Dorrydel ran never so fast but Elvaine's 
short legs struggled to follow. 

One winter day the two children played late in the palace garden. 
The chill wind chapped their blooming cheeks ; and as they sat in the 
snow the cold breath of night encrusted the half-melted drifts with ice; 
and then their old nurse bustled out to hurry them in to warmth and to 
bed. But at midnight the Frost Spirit came upon them ; and on Dorrydel 
he laid his hand not so icily, but he choked little Elvaine's breath and he 
silenced her childish voice, just as he locks the streams and stills their 
tinkling music ; and the little maid's glad romps and plays were changed 
for the perfect happiness of the eternal country. 

Dorrydel was left alone. She was not the merry little maiden of 
other times, but lonely and desolate indeed. 

"Where is my sister?" she asked, and asked again, "Where is my 
Elvaine ?" 

And her brother, the king, was very gentle to her, and the ladies- 
in-waiting were very kind, and the courtiers were very thoughtful, but 
the old nurse sobbed and said : 

"Lady, your sister has gone to a far, bright country, and she will 
not come back, but lives forever gladly there." 

"Then I must go find her and make her come back," said the child ; 
and she thought about her sister always, and longed only to set out on 
her quest. 

One spring day a few months later the princess sat on the palace 
steps, and you could not have told which was crying most softly — little 
Dorrydel or the gentle April rain. Suddenly there was a brightening, 
and looking up she saw that the end of the rainbow bridge had come 
down to the ground about her feet. Her godmother in a starry dress 
and soft-fanning wings stood near. 

"Dear child," she said, "I have seen your loneliness and I pity it. 
It is not right that you try to bring your sister back, but I will grant 
you companions. Go, seek them ; this chariot shall bear you. Only know 
that, when you step from it, you and your car disappear. Human eyes 
perceive it only as bearing its little mistress." As she spoke a graceful 
equipage from Fairyland floated down the rainbow bridge, two breaths 
harnessed to a light bubble. Lonely little Dorrydel stepped in. 

"Remember, my child, should you forget and leave your car, enter 
it again quickly, for only thus is it seen by man. It is far better that 
you be separated from your companions by its rainbow paneling than by 
utter invisibility." 

"Yes, yes, dear godmother, I know ; and now I go to play with all 
children who love my bubble car and me." 

There is a merry crowd grouped around a soapy bowl on a corner 
of the lawn. The children dip their pipes in the suds, and they blow, and 
laugh, and squeal with delight when the bubbles, all purple and pink and 
gold, float lightly in the air. The play grows louder, and the fun more 
boisterous, and the children push more eagerly, for brother is blowing 
now, and the bubble is as big as an orange; now as big as a man's two 
fists, and — yes — the children hold their breath, as big as a wee baby's 
head; they strain forward, and — it is gone! Quickly another bubble is 
blown — brightly it glistens ; softly it floats ; again it is gone. Dorrydel 
has found companions ; her bright face smiles through the iridescent walls 
of her chariot ; she delights in the children's play and longs to be one 
of them. The increasing excitement makes her forget — not until later 
is the fairy warning recalled ; she steps from her sphery, rainbow car and 
it is gone ! Virginia Randolph Bolling Pickel.

One day when I was weary of the world, 

I stole out in the open, walked along 

A path that led me on and on and on 

Through ever-changing scenes ; until I came 

To a bright spot within a little wood, 

Where lay before me in the evening light 

A rustic bridge across a sparkling brook 

That rippled o'er its pebbles with a low 

And gentle murmur. Its fair banks were clothed 

In green; and here and there among the trees 

Peeped little flowers from out the bed of earth; 

Blithe birds were caroling a song of spring. 

Beyond there stretched a wall of living green 

Hiding this quiet spot from profane eyes. 

The brook, with its low murmur, and the flowers, 

The trees, the singing birds — all seemed to say, 

"The earth is filled with gladness, be thou glad." 

And as I stood in deep reflection lost, 

The rippling surface of the brook was flecked 

With gold, and sweeter grew its joyful song. 

I turned my face to westward, and beheld 

The great sun sinking in a sea of gold, 

Cov'ring with glory all the peaceful earth. 

While looking thus I felt my strength renewed, 

And in my soul the gladness of the spring, 

For the great sun joined the earth in gladsome song. 

I listened, looked, and said: "All Heaven and earth 

Is filled with joy, and I too will be glad!" 

Ieua Deaton, '10.

fading sail and silver sea 

That bear my heart's love far from me! 

The light-house lamps so slowly burn 

And he may never more return! 

The mists arise and the wind it cries! 

But what is the need of my weary sighs 

Down the pathless way where the gray mists flee 

fading sail and somber sea! 

Out of the deep, I cry to Thee 

Who guardeth the sails on the stormy sea — 

the light of my heart is burning low, 

But steadily clear as the lantern's glow, 

And out of the deep to Thee I pray 

To keep my heart until that day 

When I turn my face toward the joy to be 

And a dawning sail o'er a sunlit sea!

The sun's bright light is hidden, dark clouds are gathering fast, 
The fair earth lies in shadow, the sky is overcast. 
And great black storm clouds roll on in their grandeur, wild and free, 
Like seething billows tossing on a dark and stormy sea. 

ye wild, mighty storm clouds that in your freedom roll, 
Your grandeur and your power with longing fill my soul. 
would that you might bear me on with you, and far away 
To that bright and happy Somewhere within the realms of day, 
Where all is peace and gladness, the fight forever won, 
Where joy is everlasting, and weary days are done!

Oh, streamlet, going singing by, 

What is the message borne to me ? 
Near to your pebbly shore I lie 

As you go singing to the sea. 

Of life and love, or if you will, 

Desire by rich fulfillment crowned, 
Or changing — ah, but chanting still, — 

Of life but through denial found. 

Yet what the message brought to me, 

Oh, cruel little laughing stream? 
Pray, what may I believe of thee — 

Which message truth and which a dream?

The goldenrod were on dress parade. The west wind marshaled them, 
and they swept up the hillside in wave after wave of yellow bloom. It 
was an afternoon aflame with yellow light — there were no trees in the 
way of march, and the free glory of the sunshine spread and splashed 
and mingled with the flaunting gold of the wild flowers. It was their 
farewell, and a brave sight they were. 

But before sunset the west wind had gone and the north wind had 
come, and each yellow banneret was put away for the long night. Quickly 
they turned brown and sank drooping, as the north wind sang them to 
sleep — all but one, left standing in the center of the deserted field, alert 
and defiant, and as brightly aglow as if the sunlight lay across it still. 
The north wind sang more and more sleepily — the goldenrod stood 
straight and tall and unheeding. Then the north wind implored it to sleep 
as the other flowers slept — it entreated, it urged — and then it warned — 
the goldenrod seemed not even to hear the insistent voice. So the wind 
sighed and went away ; and soon it came back and began softly to spread 
the white coverlet of the world. The snow was strange and beautiful 
to the last goldenrod, as it stood there, shaking in the wind and brushing 
the feathery flakes from its own feathery shoulders. 

Meanwhile all the other goldenrod slept very quietly under the deep- 
ening snow, and when the whole world was carefully covered the north 
wind went away softly, looking back to where the flower stoqd — erect, 
alone — and the north wind sighed, and sighed again as it went — and the 
last goldenrod was white with snow. 

You can see it now, in the spring, at the flower shops, where it lives 
carefully potted, and called by another name, or you may see it, a pris- 
oner, within the friendly walls of some room, and when you see it, speak 
gently, and disturb not its dream. 

For it has exchanged the open glory of autumn hillsides and the 
wild sweep of the west wind to be forever indoors, held in the silence 
of a dream — a white dream of the hush of a snow-covered world, of the 
inexpressible flaming of winter stars across the sky, of the voice of the 
wandering night wind, where it lifts and speaks to itself softly as it 
moves and sinks again to rest, and of that breathless listening silence 
through space when the voice of the night turns to meet the voice of the 
morning. E. B. M., '04.

Mv SNngrp Eneeg 

When supper-time comes and the tea-bell rings, 

I sit in a grown-up chair, 
And eat my toast as good almost 

As cake I have to share. 


And my milk and eggs and all I eat 

Goes down the red, red lane; 
It is my food that makes red blood, 

Though sometimes it makes pain. 


There can't be enough of the blood to reach 

My hungry knees and legs, 
For up they creep until they peep 

Into my soft-boiled eggs. 


"Legs down, my son," my mother 9ays; 

"For knees there's not a crumb." 
And yet they will keep rising still, — 

Tis hunger makes them come.

The Publication of the Students of St. Mary's. 


The St. Mary's Muse — now appearing ten times a year as the school 
newspaper-magazine, which has just completed its thirteenth volume — 
and The Muse,- — the student year-book, of which the present is the ninth 
copy — date from 1879. 

In 1879 Mr. Will H. Sanborn, then Music Director, decided on a little 
publication — an eight-page pamphlet, issued monthly — to further the de- 
velopment of his department. It was issued "in the interest of art, liter- 
ature, and education, and of St. Mary's School." Containing brief notes 
and comments on various topics of current interest in the music and 
literary world, with a few items about St. Mary's, it was rather a little 
newspaper in St. Mary's than the little St. Mary's newspaper. In accord- 
ance with its professed purpose of building up the Music Department, the 
paper was appropriately named The St. Mary's Muse. 

After its establishment Mr. Sanborn turned over the supervision of the 
publication to Mrs. Meares, the L,ady Principal, and it was edited under 
her direction by "Euterpe and the Pierian Club." Miss Czarnomska 
took up the supervision when she succeeded Mrs. Meares, and the publi- 
cation was issued quarterly in 1880, 1881, and 1882. Two numbers only 
appeared in 1883, and then publication was suspended. 

In 1896 Miss McVea, then Lady Principal, was the guiding hand in 
reviving the paper, but only two numbers — May, '96 and October, '96 — 
appeared. In 1898 another effort resulted in the publication of the "Holly 
Berry Muse" — a single copy. 

The Class of '99, led by Miss Minna Bynum (Mrs. Archibald Hender- 
son), in their final year turned from magazine to year-book and published 
the "Smedes Memorial Muse." It was a book of as many pages as are 
found in this year-book, but much more a magazine — with paper cover, 
few photographs and many essays, etc. — and this book is the connecting 
link between our magazine-newspaper and year-book. 

The Class of 1901 developed the year-book idea, and each successive 
Senior Class has built on the same general plan. 

In 1904 the monthly Muse was resumed as the student and alumnae 
newspaper, but cooperating with the annual instead of displacing it. 

The Muse Club, an organization for the most part of Seniors and 
Juniors, has had charge since 1906, while Mr. Cruikshank, who was 
largely responsible for the last revival of publication, has had supervision 
of the publication since 1904.

g Cat Jttap Hook at a Hing 

• SS £ MS 

Of course you know me well as the originator of the "Black Cat 
Magazine," named in all modesty after myself. And you will not be sur- 
prised when I tell you that I am a Boston cat. All of my vast literary 
fame I owe to my mother. She used often to say, "Of what utility is it 
to the feline family, my filiaj, relative, to be endowed above all animals 
with the power of visual perception, during the season when the sun 
has withdrawn its light from this terrestrial orb, if we do not use this 
beneficent gift for our own enlightenment." 

Ah! She belonged to the old school of Boston cats, did my mother, 
and even / have never excelled her in beauty of vocabulary. 

Many a night, I remember, it required the united effort of mother 
and all three of us kittens to drag down a book from the low shelves, and 
then we would spend hours in reading it. Every time a kitten missed a 
word mother gave him a severe washing with her tongue. Several of 
these was enough to dampen the ardor of any mischievous kitten and bring 
him down to hard work. 

One terrible evening for me — the last our happy family ever spent 
together — mother dragged down a book by a man named Bacon. That 
sounded so appetizing that we didn't mind reading it one bit until mother 
came to these words : 

"Some books are to be chewed up, swallowed and digested." 

No wonder we had not progressed very rapidly when we had only 
taken our literature externally, so to speak. Quick as a flash she tore out 
a page made it into little wads and began dosing us one by one. Oh, how 
stiff it was! How it hurt when it went down. But mother's expression 
was one of pure joy, her kittens should be shining lights even in literary 
Boston. I tried to please her, indeed I did, but when I swallowed part 
of the fifth page it seemed to scrape me perfectly raw from the tip of my 
tongue to the end of my tail. I gave a genuine uncultured catawal, and 
then what happened ! Some of the family rushed in and saw the book 
on which we had been feasting. As a result I was separated forever from 
my beloved mother and brothers. To this injury was added the insult 
of being given to a family degenerate enough to live in New York ! Think 
how much that meant to me, a sensitive Bostonian. But I determined 
to study the members of the family, and perhaps some day I might write 
a novel about their queer manners and customs.

This eldest son interested me a good deal. He had been to college, 
yet I never saw him eat a book. He must be very ignorant. Then again 
every one else in the family calls me "Cat" or "Kitten," but he seems to 
have a peculiarity of speech which makes him put S before his words. 
The other day when I was taking my constitutional down the corridor I 
happened to stop before his door. With his tongue-tied S he called 
"S-cat! S-cat" (meaning me to come in, of course). I ran to him at once, 
and do you know, somehow his boot flew out of his hand and hit me 
on the tail. J5ut I reasoned afterwards the poor young man must have 
had some sort of a fit which affected his muscles, for he certainly called 
me in. 

This same son had a large ring of which he was very proud. What 
was my terror to find that it was set with a cat's eye! It fairly made 
my blood run cold to think of such barbarity. Perhaps that was why he 
called me into his room. You may be sure I avoided him after that and 
was more than ever careful of my two eyes. 

Once when I was sneaking away from this young man I chanced to 
see a card lying face up on the hall floor. I read it : 


I could scarcely believe my eyes. Mother had brought us up on that 
old saying, "A cat may look at a king," and impressed upon us how that 
would be the most happy and momentous event of our lives. But perhaps 
he had already come and gone ! The idea fairly sickened me. But a little 
later I heard one of the chambermaids say, "I do wish Mr. King would 
come I" So I was to see him after all. But what a pert maid. "Mr. 
King" indeed ! She should have made a courtesy and said, "His Most 
Royal Highness, the King." But times have changed since I was young. 

I could scarcely wait until night came to call together my friends on 
the back fence and tell them of the glorious chance to see a real king. One 
of our musical members suggested that we should practice a cantata to 
sing in honor of his Majesty. This we did, very heartily, until a pair of 
boots came flying out and scattered us. 

The next day as I lay in the garden dreaming about the great event 
I heard two small girls out in the swing discussing what they should 
do. "Let's let the cat die !" Now I was the only cat in the house, so she 

was plainly referring to me. My hair stood on end with fright for my- 
self and dismay, that a child who had made a special pet of me had secretly 
hated me and contemplated my murder. What a deceitful world this 
is ! My first impulse was to fly, but that seemed the part of a coward ! 
No; I would stay to see the king, even at the risk of being killed by the 
two girls and having my eyes set in a ring for that odious young man. 
Then my heroic feelings became so strong that I felt compelled to seek 
the back fence and practice my solo for the Royal Cantata. But just as I 
entered the hall I heard the maid announce, "Mr. King has come ma'am 1" 
I fairly stretched two inches longer at the thought of seeing royalty, and 
waving my tail like an imperial banner followed my lady. She went 
through the hall, and then (wonder of wonders!) into the kitchen. I 
could not resist the temptation of sticking my head into the room to get 
one peep at his Royal Highness before calling in my friends. And then ! 
there in the middle of the floor stood a tall youth in overalls with a plumb- 
er's tools in his hand! "Mr. King!" I understood it all now. It was 
for this that I had been ready to suffer martyrdom ! For this I had prac- 
ticed so faithfully in the beautiful cantata ! This was the day that mother 
had said would be the happiest of my life! The shock was too great 
and I fell into a deadly swoon. The cook came and stood over me and, 
in a voice which sounded miles away, said : 

"Al'lus poking into things — were you? Sure an' I hered before that 
'curiosity killed a cat.' " Faintly I wondered was curiosity a member of 
that household too. Then there was absolutely no hope for me if I re- 
mained. With one desperate effort I gathered the strength of my other 
eight lives, shot through the open window, and left forever the haunts 
of that barbaric creature — man !

New, new, and old. New progress crown the old 

And for the school, St. Mary's, joy untold 

The bright new year — her sixty-seventh — shall hold. 

So ran the ancient prophecy I read 

In musty parchment in a hall of books, 
When home from school bright memories thronged my head, 
Of graduation, schoolmates' happy looks, 
And all of sad or sweet that makes the round 
Of school life dear. — On, read the book profound. 

New friends and true. Neio girls the new shall meet. 
And new, the old; and old, the old shall greet; 
And all shall join in friendships true and sweet.

Trunks upside down, and upside down the rooms, 
New pupils learning unfamiliar ways, 

When with the joy of greetings sadly comes 
The loneliness of longing for one's home, — 
I saw it all, while thus the ancient tome — 

Gay hearts and glad, and hearts of thankfulness, 
All these the sun shall shine on but to bless 
When drawing near the solstice, it grows less. 

"A train of revelers gay who represent 

Each age and each estate, is told of here," 

Thought I, and saw All Hallow's merriment. 

Then passing on in heart I seemed to hear 

Of harvests, flocks, rich blessings of Life's way, — 
The noble service of Thanksgiving Day. 

Warm hearts and glad, chill Capricorn shall see, 
Earth's saddest season, gladdest prove to be, 
And sad or glad it only rests tvith thee. 


December's frost blew coldly on me then, 

But tempered by warm memories of the love 
That blessed the school with cheer and laughter whem 
From Wonderland the teachers showed above 

White Rabbit, Alice, while the school-girls knew 
In loving gifts to show the season's due. 

Seeds struggling through dark ground bloom in the light; 

So ye shall strive a season seeking right, 

Then shall ye flower in blossoms, pure and white. 

The sweet and solemn fast of Lent returned, 
Nearer we drew to that One Perfect Life, 
Awhile from care and pleasure respite earned 
Until were past the Forty Days of strife; 
Then on the wings of radiant carols borne 
Our hearts burst forth in joy on Easter morn. 

High, great, and high. Achievements high though small, 

Works great and lowly every life befall, * 

And great and high, so can ye make them all. 

Here words to those six graduates are sent, 

Who go this year from out St. Mary's halls 
For futures fair and far and misty meant, 
To do some works, else left undone, Life calls. 
And stepping outward ever onward go, 
And ever upward, peace and joy shall know. 

New, new, and old. New progress crown the old 

And for the school, St. Mary's, joy untold 

The future stretching far and bright shall hold.

Ke is is 

(a 1909 peep into the shkine of the goddess.) 

"Roek-a-bye, babies, in the house-top, 
Regardless of weather our tongues never stop ! 

Silent as Lorna or noisy as Gibbs 

Each and all of us swear by our Cribbs!" 

I had long wished to visit Miss Cribbs's dormitory, the fame of which 
must have come to the ears of all my readers. At last the opportunity pre- 
sented itself, and I seized it with delight. On entering the dormitory 
I was greeted by a sound the like of which I had never before heard. 

"What is that ?" I cried. 

"Oh that," replied the young lady who was very kindly acting as my 
guide, "is only Hales chuckling to herself." 

Seated on one end of the little white beds I next espied a maiden with 
disheveled hair and eyes flashing with indignation. 

"Don't you dare touch my Teddy ! Don't you dare !" she cried. 

" 'Scuse may !" from the auburn-haired damsel from across the aisle. 

I next heard a series of suppressed chuckles which seemed to proceed 
from a maiden who lay with her nose buried in a book. 

"What is the matter fair maid?" I said. 

"Why, you know," she replied, "the preposterous experiences this 
gentleman relates are like nothing that occurred to me when I last visited 
Detroit. It is absolutely ludicrous." 

"Oh, by the way, Dorothy," came a voice, "when you were in De- 
troit did you meet Miss B ? She is an intimate friend of Helen Taft's 

and I knew her so well, the last time I visited Helen in Washington. You 
know Helen and I are great chums." 

"Well, I'm mighty blue. My Angel came up so late I couldn't kiss 
her good-night last night," came a plaintive wail. 

"Kathryn, do you remember about what we told 'em about Lem?" a 
laughing maid cried. 

"Sure I do, Al," was the reply, "and how about Dr. Dawsett?" 


A chorus of Haws ! 

"Do you all know," said a meek voice, "I'm worried to death, I an- 
swered "merit" last night, and I'm so scared I might have talked in my 
sleep." . v 

Another burst of laughter. 

"My mamma told me she was glad you are ugly, and told me not to 
never talk in my sleep," came from alcove fourteen. 

"I declare" (in a burst of rapture), "there's Marjorie, she's so pretty. 
But did you see Lena to-night? And I do think Ida's the sweetest thing." 

"Alice," said a languid voice, "that was a pretty dress you had on 
to-night; but what material was it and how much did it cost?" 

"Slodie" (excitedly), "go down and get my brush, and Boyd, won't 
you button me up, and Louise darling, please sew a button on my shoe ; 
and will you all please kindly hush if it is all the same to you, and let 
me hear what Passie's saying?" 

"Do you all know, I picked a lot of violets for Paula, but I think I'll 
wear 'em myself after all," said a maid who stood with a huge bunch of 
violets in her hand. 

"There's the light bell. Girls, won't you all please get quiet. Miss 
Cribbs left me in charge," said a quiet voice. 

"Janie, wait one minute till I read my Bible." 

"All right, Kathryn, but hurry up." 

A chorus of "Janie, please ask Louise to wake me up in the morning. 

"Janie, please ask Louise to wake me up in the morning. 

"Janie, may I speak once?" 

"Yes, but hurry up, I'm going to put the light out now." 

My fair guide and I silently withdrew, and left these maidens to their 
slumbers sweet.

Soli and Chorus. 

(Wherein the Student Dog pays his respects to the Fa-cul-tee 
and to "Pizzy" the Fa-cul-tee Cat.) 

The Fa-cul-tee and the Fa-cul-tee Cat 
In the Fa-cul-tee Par-lor nois-i-ly sat. 
A-h me, ah me! 

Miss Fenner arose from her rocking-chair 
And picked up the cat and plucked out some hair. 
A-h me, ah me! 

Miss Jones fed poor puss till he burst into tears, 
And then tried to squeeze the food from his ears. 
A-h me, ah me! 

When he meowed and meowed like his heart would break 
Miss Kellogg showed her love in a great big shake. 
A-h me, a-h me! 

Misses Pixley and Hull, with love untold, 
Each selected an end and then took hold — 
And pulled, and pulled! 

When "Pizzy" was stretched a yard or more, 
Each petted her end with love galore — 
And pulled and pulled! 

And tuned her to A; 'twas then Miss "Will" 
Played "Pizzy-Pizzy-catto" with her usual skill, — 
And pulled, and pulled! 

One end gave way, all fell to the floor, 
The cat with a scream rushed out of the door. 
A-h me, ah me! 

And in the dim distance could be heard the cry 
Of kitty as she fled to the steam laun-dry — 
A-h me, ah me! 

And through the soft air came the sad refrain, 
"You'll never kill me with love again!" 
A-h me, ah me! 

The faculty fell on their bended knees 
And cried out: "Come back, kitty, please." 
A-h me, ah me! 

A broken-hearted meow replied, 
"I'll try a milder suicide." 
A-h me, ah me! 


With these sad words poor "Pizzy" pushed 
Through the patent mangle and was crushed. 
A-h me, ah me! 

And from the other side there stole 
A quivering tissue, pussy's soul. 
A-h me, ah ine! 

Which winged its way to heaven's gate 
Where good St. Peter sits in state — 
Ha — ha, ha — ha! 

"Oh, dear St. Peter may a cat 
Come into heaven? Tell me that." 
Ha — ha, ha — ha! 

St. Peter glanced at his book and smiled, 
And said to Pizz, "Come in, my child." 
Ha — ha, ha — ha! 

"For nothing here's too good, in that 
You were St. Mary's Faculty cat!" 
Ha — ha, ha — ha! 

So now he sits in gorgeous state, 
Meowing his songs on the golden gate. 
Ha — ha, ha — ha!

A night so soft and sweet, 

A sky of jet, with jewels spangled, 

A disappearing sickle of a moon; 

A sleepy bird's soft warble in a bush, 

A velvet-soft and cooling springtime breeze 

Sighing its gentle way through leaves and boughs, 

Seeking to kiss the cheek of sleeping beauty! 

St. Mary's slumbers in its grove. 

With faintest waft of wings and silv'ry glow she comes 

An angel from the realms of light. 

Pausing to listen to the long-drawn gurgling roar of maidens' slumbers 

And gently smiling as she listens. 

Hovering and smiling o'er each quaint and ancient building 

Until she reaches Senior Hall — 

There she gives pause ; 

She heaves a mighty sigh, 

She drops a mighty tear, 

And with a cry she flees, — 

Some one's been eating onions in that place. 

Chaw Sir.

N. Gibbs annoys with ceaseless talk — 

Never yet. 
On exams, we always pass, 
The Muse suits Mr. C. at last, 
Pickel's the lowest in her class — 

Never yet. 

Every light is out at ten — 

Never yet. 
The Muse Club meetings are at an end — 

Never yet. 
And as the end is drawing nigh, 
I hear each tearful Senior sigh, 
"Why do I have to leave — oh, why?" 

Never yet.

At a table quite long, — all in business engrossed, — 

The Muse Board in dignity sat, 
Conversing of ways and discussing of means 

And wondering "where they were at." 

There was "Georgia Verbosa" and "dignified Sal''; 

"Demure Frances" and "dainty Miss Wood"; 
"Proper Julia," "dear Frankie," "society Min," 

And Eva, "who could if she would." 

The themes worthy of discourse were of various range: 

Cigarettes were included — and Pete — 
The appropriate weather for selling ice-cream, 

And the prevalent brands of conceit. 

There was talk of the weather, tirades at the moon, 

And the walking of Mr. Bill Jones; 
Then a veer off to "ooze-sheep" and "deckel" and "calf," 

While comparing the Bells with the Stones. 

The Ed'tor-in-Chief is an eloquent lass, 

With a tongue fast attached in the middle; 
So no matter the subject deemed best to discuss, 

They find her as fit as a fiddle. 

"Alumnae affairs" and a "border design" 

Were discussed without sign of a fight; 
But the "pose characteristic" and "medallion effect" 

Were the themes of the purest delight. 

The number of Annuals sold and unsold, 

The ads. promised and those, too, refused; 
Assessments, entertainments, invitations, the play, 

Each entered in turn and amused. 

But after the finance was threshed out in bits, 

With no very great display of cash; 
And after the plan of the book was worked out, 

With a whole-hearted fervor and dash. 

At length in a lull in this important "biz" 

Some one jumped up in haste as if shot: 
"0, tell me, what matter's to go in the Muse? 

Where is it? How is't to be got?" 

They gaze at each other, they ponder and think, 

Further discourse is sudd'nly tabu; 
Each looks up in confusion, frowns gently and sighs — 

They adjourn without further ado.

H* It' &' 

Close the book tenderly, 

Handle with care; 
Praise it not slenderly — 

That is our prayer! 
Count not its many faults, 

Glowing like beacon lights; 
Pegasus balked for us 

Making his flights. 

Stories and anecdotes, 
Padding and filling, 

Wrought out so tearfully, 
The good and the willing! 

Jeer not at joke and pun; 
Take them all cheerfully, 

They were all meant for fun- 
Laugh if you can. 

Make not a rarity 
Of Christian charity. 

As you peruse 
Think of tho brevity, 
Pardon the levity, 

Take not offense! 
Let this thought comfort you, 

Calm, make amend, 
Sooth and compose your mind- 

This is the end!
